The Association of Community Cancer Centers is governed by its bylaws and by its Board of Trustees, House of Delegates, and 14 committees.
ACCC's governing bodies are made up of volunteers committed to promoting quality cancer care in the community setting. Volunteers represent all members of the multidisciplinary care team, and represent programs ranging from small community practices, stand-alone cancer centers, hospital-based cancer programs, to large academic medical centers.
